Improving the Quality of Life
Rehabilitation is critical in restoring strength, mobility and quality of life after a cardiac or pulmonary event. Pullman Regional Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center provides exercise training, behavioral modification and disease education under the supervision of a hospital based physician. For those with heart, lung, or vascular disease, our team of hospital-based physicians and registered respiratory therapists can work with you to improve overall quality of life.
How the Program Works
STEP 1: One-on-one interview with the Rehabilitation Coordinator and the Hospitalist to review patient’s history, evaluate patient activity level, and determine a plan of care for patient's specific needs.
STEP 2: Participate in a 1-hour exercise session 2-3 times per week, up to 36 sessions (or more if patient’s insurance provider allows). Also included in each session is education on the risk factors involved in their disease process. Periodic reports will be sent to the referring and primary physician, keeping them updated on their patient’s progress in the program.
STEP 3: Phase III rehabilitation at Summit Therapy and Health Services (if applicable).
STEP 4: Upon completion of the rehabilitation program, the patient will receive a discharge assessment by the Hospitalist.
